Bunya Mountains National Park

Photo: From Gordon Smith, Grass Tree Forest, Look and See.

Looking slightly surreal, grass trees in State Forest on the edge of the Bunya Mountains National Park, Queensland.

The nuts of the Bunya pine were a traditional food for the Australian Aborigines. When the pine fruited, Aborigines would gather from what is now southern Queensland and Northern New England for ceremonies and to feast.

Today the Bunya Mountains National Park preserves some of this tradition.
